I’ve actually no idea what the guy looked like, for reasons that will become apparent. So this is an impression of what the scene may have looked like.
I met a lovely chap in the pub, gave him my number. The next day, the phone rang but it wasn’t the lovely chap. Turns out it was another random man who’d been in the pub at the same time.
As he explained: “You seemed nice, so when I heard you giving your number to that other guy, I thought I’d write it down and call you myself”.
